With apologies to the Beatles; Roll up, roll up for the Mexico Tour. You have an invitation, to make a reservation. The Magical Mexico Tour is waiting to take you away.

Come along with Greg to complete the 5000-kilometer journey we started last year, taking us through much of northern and central Mexico. You might recall that we traveled many, many miles and saw some beautiful scenery along with flowering Agaves, Echeveria, Ferocactus, Fouquieria, Mammillarias, Yuccas, and even a snake. Part 3 will cover the last leg of the trip from central Mexico through northwestern Mexico, and has in store for us, pictures of surprise, Agaves, Echinocereus and more scenery.

Greg is still intent on studying the large and diverse Agave genus both horticulturally and taxonomically. (He promises not to put you to sleep with too much taxonomy). Greg and Jose Angel Villarreal described the amazing Whale's Tongue Agave (Agave ovatifolia) and is always on the lookout for other, possibly undescribed species of Agaves. Greg owns Starr Nursery, a Tucson based mail order and retail (by appointment) nursery specializing in members of the Agavaceae as well as other succulents and new to horticulture shrubs and perennials.

Please join us for the third and final leg of the 2006 Mexico adventure.
